West Brom's Odemwingie targets best-ever goal haul

Nigeria's Peter Odemwingie is targeting 15 league goals for this season

West Bromwich striker Peter Odemwingie has set himself a best-ever scoring target for a season of 15 goals.

The Nigeria international hit his 11th Premier League goal of this campaign on Saturday in the 3-2 win at Sunderland.

He needs four more goals to beat his highest previous haul of 14 for French club Lille in the 2005-06 season.

"My target is still to beat my best season of 14 goals. With six games to go still, it is possible to get to the 15 mark," he said.

In his first season, he has already equalled Robert Earnshaw's tally in 2004-05 - the best haul for West Bromwich since the top flight was rebranded in 1992.

"It is a big plus for me to hold the joint record for the most Premier League goals in a season for West Brom," Odemwingie said.

Albion have climbed into the top half of the table after taking 12 points from six games in an unbeaten run since Roy Hodgson became manager.

"We have 39 points and I think we need two more wins to be there in terms of safety," Odemwingie added.

"The coach stressed after Saturday's win that we are still not safe and that we still have to fight to stay up."
